Gear Spindles

Among the many types of spindles on the market, gear spindles are the best choice for those who need to reduce production costs as much as possible. Its components and process costs are relatively low, and easy to maintain. At the same time, the gear spindle usually has high torque characteristics, which is particularly suitable for specific types of processing needs.

At the same time, due to the relatively simple composition of the gear spindle, it has a stable mechanical function and can achieve efficient cutting. If other types of spindles are used for this kind of machining, the variables that affect the cutting efficiency increase instead.

On the other hand, there are usually multiple spindles on the machining center, such as the headstock spindle and tailstock spindle on a table lathe (turning center). According to this concept, the spindle is usually the largest rotating part in the machine. 
 
In the application of machine tool spindles, gear spindles are an important part of the transmission system. Regarding the operating mechanism, the rigidity of the spindle may be affected by the drive performance, while modern and efficient gear spindles require less maintenance and are much more economical.
 
In terms of speed, the gear spindle provides a constant angular velocity at the eccentric angle, which ensures uniform power transmission, resulting in the consistent and improved surface quality of rolled workpieces. In addition, the excellent dynamic balancing level of the gear spindle minimizes vibration, which can extend the service life of surrounding components of the spindle such as bearings, gears, and others of the transmission system.

Multi-spindles on a machining center

There are usually multiple spindles on the machining center, such as the headstock spindle and tailstock spindle on a table lathe (turning center). According to this concept, the spindle is usually the largest rotating part in the machine.

 

Other important issues

In the machine tool industry, tools are one of the most important components for machining. Whether it is a lathe, a milling machine, a machining center, a drilling machine, or a tapping machine, they all need to be equipped with appropriate tools to achieve the desired output. Since the beginning of the 20th century, machine tools have changed more and more due to technological developments and a surge in market demand. 
 
As milling machines were invented for more complex machining, multi-task cutting became the focus of machine tool developers. In addition to tools, accessories such as tool holders (tool holders), stabilizers, locknuts, and spindle joints are also important for machining. The market for these products is huge, especially in the automotive, aerospace, household appliances, 3c electronic consumables, and defense and power generation industries. When the workpiece has a complex contour, the number of tools installed on the turret or tool magazine is more, making the machine control system very complicated.
 
During the operation of the spindle, the indexing table is also very important, it is a component linked with the spindle. Indexing rotary tables are the most critical components for performing automatic machining in the machine tool industry. Its tilting capability provides the possibility of complex machining. In Taiwan, machine tool parts and components are a huge market in the industry, with a large share of exports. 

The inventory of machine tool components is a very large category, such as casted parts, spindles, motors, servo equipment, saddle, locknut, shells, hydraulic cylinders, chucks, claw, precision screws, tailstock, jigs, and many others.

 

Conclusion

The spindle is a key part of machine tool processing, and there are a wide variety of spindle lists, such as direct drive, belt drive, motorized, gear drive, etc. Although each type has its basic and special functions, the final output of the machine tool depends on the integrity of the assembly.
